Whoa! Meagan Good Is Bringing 'Foxy Brown' to Hulu as a Series


Meagan Good is making another attempt at a TV series – one that’s also based on a movie, following last year’s “Minority Report” at Fox, which unfortunately was axed by the network after its first season. This time around, Good is bringing Foxy Brown (the 1974 Blaxploitation flick that helped put Pam Grier on the map) to the small screen as a series that’s set up at Hulu (surprisingly) and will be executive produced by DeVon Franklin and Tony Krantz, with MGM TV studios.

Described as a modern-day reimagining of cult classic, the series will be scripted by Malcolm Spellman and Ben Watkins, who will also showrun, with Good also serving as a producer of what has been a passion project for her.

MGM, seemingly uninterested in new original material, continues to mine its content library for titles to reboot/revive/remake/reimagining/etc. From “Ben-Hur,” to “The Thomas Crown Affair,” “RoboCop,” “Carrie,” “Poltergeist,” “WarGames,” “The Magnificent Seven,” “In the Heat of the Night,” “Death With,” and now “Foxy Brown”; a continuation of a trend.

It’s worth noting that in the early 2000s, Halle Berry was attached to star in and produce a remake of “Foxy Brown” for MGM. It obviously never happened. But it’s appears MGM has wanted to bring the character back to the screen for some time, and this might be as good a time as any.

By the way, the star of the “Foxy Brown” movie – Pam Grier – wrote an autobiography a couple of years, titled “Foxy: My Life In Three Acts” – in which she talks about, amongst other things, her early relationships with Richard Pryor, Freddie Prinze & Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and how Richard Pryor put cocaine on his penis before having sex with her; the book was been optioned by Imprint Entertainment (“Twilight,” “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief”) to adapt for the screen. Since the initial announcement, there hasn’t been much reported about the potential project.

Good will next be seen in the Lifetime movie “Love By the 10th Date,” directed by Nzingha Stewart, which premieres on January 28th. She can currently be seen in the coming-of-age drama feature “A Girl Like Grace,” which was released a couple of weeks ago.

Take a look at the original trailer for the 1974 movie below; and if you have never seen it, you should do so before the Hulu TV series becomes a reality:
